That would put them in line for a 6 seed that doesn't really have a shot at the sweet 16.

Oh, I think it was because I thought Marcus Foster went to LSU, but he ended up going to Creighton instead. Foster would have put that team over the top. Also, he didn't fight the transfer rules and has to sit out anyway (he was dismissed, so he shouldn't have to sit out). What an idiot.

Listening to Dan Dakich just criticize UNC all night was awful. Obviously there were times to do it, but it was non-stop.

Who the fuck is he....besides a shitty analyst. Very impressive win though, normally we lose those type of games. Kansas State has some damn good players.

Didn't catch that. I did listen to Kara Lawson and Mark Jones go all homer on the Marquette vs ASU game. Announcers don't need to be pulling for a team, especially when they have no allegiance to them. (ASU)

Dakich is the worst in game analyst in any sport. Complete jackass.

Hell yes Monmouth! Doing quite well in the early goings. Robinson is fun.

Curious how USC does against Xavier tomorrow.

Denzel Valentine is putting up some pretty silly numbers this year.

Apparently, the new AD at Mizzou is trying to get out ASAP. Can't blame him. Holy shit that school's athletic department is dog shit right now. Both basketball and football looking like they'll finish dead last in the SEC. Basketball team probably won the only two games they'll win all year and Gary Pinkel is retiring with cancer. Yeesh... What a mess.

Not to mention they don't have a President and protesters are trying to run things. That whole school is in trouble

Okay, 6 seed in the National Tournament might even be a bit much for LSU, they're getting smoked by Charleston. If they don't fix their issues given their talent, this could actually be an NIT team. Dead last in the SEC in RPI (291st overall on ESPN), and if they lose today, 0-3 with RPI in the 100-150 range, their only 3 wins having a lower RPI than that.

They got Antonio Blakeney (16th ranked recruit in the 247 composite) to play the Bill Walker role, and he is their leading scorer.

Kansas State had a better coach, better supporting cast, and Beasley was much further along as a scorer than Simmons.

It's like Beasley's K-State, if Beasley couldn't shoot.

Paige playing tonight, thank the lord.

If the guards can play well, we should win. Brice and Kennedy will have big nights because I think the UMD frontcourt is the weak spot for them.
